Nice.

Seen a few like that, those diesels can make some serious power. Just imagine if they weren't all in lead sleds.

It is fun to have unsuspectingly fast vehicles. I think I surprise more people in the Trailblazer SS than in the Miata. One is about as fast as the other, but a 400 hp SUV is pretty uncommon.

It takes a lead sled to handle those built turbo diesels. Monster torque and huge heavy.

That guy beat the Z06 by about the same margin at 80' as at the end. Would have been about even if he hadn't wasted him off the line.

For SUV's that SRT Jeep is pretty quick too.

my gosh.... now lets see them both take a turn lol. Still amazing performance for a truck. Those diesels have a crap load of potential. Theres a guy that lingers around on honda tech that has a dodge truck with 400 hp and like 900 torque @ the wheels. ( a friend of mine knows him)

I read somewhere they have a huge advantage because they have no throttle body. Not to mention the charge pipes and exhausts on them are HUGE!

Hell, a 12.18 quarter in something that weighs like 5000#!

Sbrian - my buddy just bought a Trailblazer SS. 400hp is good, but I told him I won't respect him unless he can get smoke from all 4!

Mine is 2wd so the only way I'll get smoke from all 4 is to slide it sideways. 2wd is faster than 4wd from what I've heard, proabably due to the weight of the other gearboxes.

High 13's stock, 12's are very attainable with bolt ons and tuning.

Other Advantages:
-the newer ones run between 1200-1600 bar fuel pressure
-Diesel=efficient
-Stock head-gaskets can handle infinite boost
-bottom end is damn near bulletproof

The Banks Sidewinder that set the land speed record for a diesel truck was running a factory block and bottom end. They essentially modified the head, intake, turbo, exhaust, tuning, injectors, etc etc... but the stock bottom end was holding the 750HP and 1500 lb*ft of torque they were throwing down.

Oh yeah, and it was still emissions legal in California.
